Water granules are used where frequent watering is a problem.
- Pots and hanging baskets are perhaps the hardest things in the garden to keep moist. The answer is to add water granules to the potting mix. This will act as a buffer between waterings. Granules can be added to established pots & baskets by using a pencil to make vertical holes into the potting soil and dropping a few granules into the hole, then backfill the top of the hole with potting soil.
- Adding water granules around the roots of new planted trees and shrubs will help maintain critical moisture levels during the first couple of dry seasons.
- Adding granules to flower beds and vegetable gardens when planting will act as a fantastic moisture backup and nutrient reservoir over the summer months.
- Granules are a buffer between waterings they do not replace the need for regular checking of watering needs, especially when the plants are growing strongly and during hot dry weather.
- Granules perform for 2-3 seasons
- They will eventually biologically degrade with no evidence of adverse effects on soil microorganisms, plants, animals, soil or groundwater.

- Wet Granules
Mix 5g (one teaspoon) into 750ml water. Leave to sit for an hour then add to 5L of potting mix or topsoil.
Increase to 10g (two teaspoons) per 5L potting mix where there is high population of plants in dry prone pots and hanging baskets.
Vegetable or flower seedlings/seed: mix 10g per m2 into top 50mm of topsoil, sow seed or seedlings and water in thoroughly.
30grams per 2 metre row work granules into soil close to plant roots.
- Dry Granules
Granules can be used dry or wet, the same granule x potting mix/soil ratio applies. However, make
sure to allow for an increase in soil
volume once the granules become wet.
